There are over 90 active Community Tennis Associations in the state of Texas. Community Tennis Associations are formed by tennis enthusiasts who want to bring new players to the game and expand opportunities for existing players to enjoy the game.

A Community Tennis Association (CTA) is defined as "any incorporated, geographically defined, not-for-profit, volunteer-based tennis organization that supports or provides programs which promote and develop the growth of tennis."

The USTA recognizes four types of CTAs that may exist in local communities nationwide:

Single-Purpose CTA – Organized with a single, narrow purpose that addresses a specific need in a community. It delivers only one program or service and does not address the needs of the entire community.

Multi-Purpose CTA – Offers more than one program or service while still not being a full-service organization. An example of this type might be in a community committed to offering a variety of tennis programs, but only for its youth. The entire adult population is not served through this CTA’s programs or services.

Umbrella CTA - An Umbrella CTA represents what we consider to be the most comprehensive type of CTA. This category of CTA delivers a full menu of programs and services to the entire community, regardless of age, gender, cultural or socioeconomic background, physical ability, or skill level. Anyone at any time has the opportunity to try the game, learn the skills, play with friends or compete in match play.

Coalition CTA – The Coalition CTA represents the alliance of diverse community organizations whose purpose is to facilitate the delivery of tennis programs and services through these organizations and ensures that programs exist for anyone at anytime to try the game, learn the skills, play with friends or compete in match play.

If you would like to develop a community tennis association in your area contact Todd Carlson, community development coordinator, at the USTA Texas Section at 512-443-1334 ext. 208 or tcarlson@texas.usta.com
